You can safely ignore those hyperbolic forum posts. Yes, the legacy Visible Unlimited Plan and your $15 Party Pay discount will both go the way of the dodo and the net result is an eventual monthly rate increase of $5. Oh, woe is you! But before you allow yourself to be stampeded, consider:
1) On October 18, 2022, it won’t matter what size your party is as long as it includes 4 or more members. Visible will close Party Pay and lock in your discount based on your party size level on that day and that day only. A 100,000-member party and a 10-member party will be essentially equal.
2) Once Party Pay is closed, it will be impossible for anyone to affect your discount by leaving your party. Your $15 Party Pay discount will be locked in until you select another plan. You will have to change your plan before the January 2023 deadline.
3) If you worry that your current party might drop below 4 members on or before 10/18/2022, or even if you just enjoy rearranging the deckchairs, then by all means move to another party. Visible requests that we post Party Pay links in the Savings Spot forum only and no more than once a day, so zip over to the Savings Spot Forum to see my Party Pay link along with many others!
The Visible+ plan would cost you $45 monthly. The new $30 Visible and $45 Visible+ plans are not discounted. Visible will discontinue the $15 Party Pay discount along with the original $40 Visible Unlimited Plan. Currently, you can use the Bring a Friend Referral Program to get a $20 credit against your monthly service plan rate, and you can bank up to 12 months.

There were 3 official responses from the Visible Care team answering @Garfiel79098277 on Twitter and this Reddit link should cover it sufficiently: garfieldcatto (u/garfieldcatto) - Reddit

"Hey there, friend! Thank you for reaching out to Visible Care! We are glad to help you with Party Pay information! All members of the old plan will be able to join a Party until October, and the Legacy plan will be valid until January 2023. *VD"

"Also, on January 2023, everyone has to switch to one of the new plans, and with this step, the Party Pay program will be closed. No worries about it, as the new plans make the process more easier, without so many steps to create parties and join them. *VD"

"You are right! The bill will be 30$, without any discounts. *VD"
However, this from The Verge here: Verizon’s Visible is ending its incredible Party Pay deal - The Verge
"In a statement Verizon emailed to The Verge, though, the company says that’s not going to be the case. “To speak to the January 1st comments, we aren’t getting rid of Visible Unlimited on 01/01/23,” Verizon spokesperson Caroline Brooks said. “We will always evaluate the best use of our networks, capital and customer experience, and should we decide to make a change in the future, we will ensure our loyal Visible members have plenty of notice.”"
So Verizon and the Visible Care team differ. For my part, I plan on remaining with the legacy Visible Unlimited Plan until I have to move to another Visible plan, and I don't much care when that is.
